Birthday Present for Nicole

I heard from Nicole today that she has received the birthday gift that I sent to her in the envelope with Wendy's Neighborhood Round Robin :-) (I still need to reply to her email, though!). I stitched her a needleroll which turned out a little bit larger than I had antcipated and was a real bear to stuff - LOL:

Stitching Days Needle Roll

Glory Bee

32 ct Natural Belfast Linen, GAST Floss


I also entered this needle roll in Becky's Monthly Finishing Challenge ;-)

Now I shall disappear for the evening... I really have to go finish the Spring House and Garden exchange so it can go in the mail tomorrow (Monday, which is our mailing date, is a postal holiday - at least it is here in New England because it is Patriot's Day...)

Sorry this is a bit blurry - you know how YouTube videos are... but here is a case study in how NOT to be thrown out at second base...Sean Casey of the Boston Red Sox vs. the New York Yankees a couple of nights ago...

>>>I LOVE THIS! - doin' the crab walk! Gotta love the helmet over his eyes the whole time too! LOL

Your needleroll is lovely, and your Sean Casey video brought back alot of laughs from that great game. He's a class act, and it's great to see him get some more playing time, although I miss Lowell!
